He's dead, not an absentee dad.

this is a trope that happens in all most all shounen if you want some good parent watch some seinen
>>
It's a way to add depth to a young character.
Because kids are influenced heavily by their parents, both good and bad ones.

I thought Eren's dad was a pretty good dad, until the recent revelations.
Can't have nice dads.

Doesn't explain "why" though. You don't even have to be a bad guy to be a bad dad. It's just that so many hinge on the fucking psychotic.

Awful dad.

Because writing is hard.

For some reason shoujo tends to have parents that actually give a shit, unless they're dead or the father ran away to avoid paying off his gambling debts.

Father of the year all years right here.
>>
>>120502876
Well maybe if his son wasn't such an edgy motherfucker they'd be able to communicate better.
Germain leaves him a lot of room and never patronizes him because chances are he'd throw a bitchfit if he did.

>>120501671
Because Japanese parents are terrible.

That sounds right.

I think TFS put it best.
"A son? I have one of those."
"Wait shit I have two of those!"
>>
Parents being terrible and causing their kids problems is a cliche as old as fucking time itself.

Reminder that Gendo did nothing wrong.

>>120506865
To be fair, he split a demon in half and put the evil shit in his kid and took the good shit for himself.
>>
Hohenheim wasn't that bad, he had a pretty good reason to be wandering the country instead of being home
>>
>>120501671
Cause kids with normal parents don't end up fighting windmills. They get a job.
>>
>>120508325
His intentions were good, but he was a retarded parent. He asks his wife if it's okay to hold his own kids and both Ed and Al remembers him as a distant bum who was holed up in his study all the time. He barely interacted with his sons before bumping into them again.

>Because writing is hard

"good" dads are boring.

Are you so fucking retarded that you just want some slice of life where nothing happens?
>>
Kiritsugu was not bad.

Life just fucked with him beyond belief.
>>
>>120508966
Also he tried to be a good parent to Shirou
>>
>>120508814
That's true, but it must be hard knowing that one day they will die while you can't, I guess he thought it would hurt less if he didn't get to know them better
>>
>>120508958
Take a good writer to take something that's normally boring and make it interesting, no? An interesting situation may not from the character, but the circumstances around him or her.
>>
>>120508958
Good or bad doesn't matter. You can make both interesting if you're not a shit writer.

Just because there's a good dad in an anime doesn't mean it's going to be a slice of life you retard.
>>
>>120508966
Kerry fucked up Shirou's training. He only half taught him shit, which led to him practicing in a way that almost killed him every night.
>>
>>120509993
He trained him wrong on purpose.

As a joke.
>>
Pretty much all the parents in Fafner are good ones.

But then, they technically aren't "parents" since the Festum made them sterile. All of their "kids" are actually clones of them, with the exception of Miwa who is the first naturally conceived child in 30 years.
>>
>>120509993
Kerrytugu never thought there would be another Grail War so soon.
>>
>>120506924
wait didn't he took the yin part and gave the yang part to naruto?
>>
>>120510095
Doesn't matter, the way he was being taught was just plain wrong on a technical level. One wrong move and he would have died. Fucker trained like that every day regardless.

What the fuck are you even talking about? Have you not seen any SoL at all? Because parents are pretty much nonexistent in most of them.

Him being an edgy idiot is German's fault, though.
He was the one raising the boy since he was an infant.

Everyone wants to live in anime world with no dads.
